One of the ladies at my Red Hat Club gave me this wonderful recipe. She had made it with green and red large gr.peppers. I had this bag of mini-sweet colorful little peppers, and decided to improvize and use them instead. It was a great hit with my company,and a beautiful presentation dish with the colorful veggies. A great recipe for a NO-MEAT DAY! I do hope you will enjoy this little recipe, kissed with garlic and love. Hugs, Nancy...12/23/12
